So what’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint about?
Well, it is a military shooter set in a diverse and hostile open world entirely playable solo or in up to four-player co-op. You get to discover a mysterious island called Auroa, where the most technically advanced facilities meet wild and untamed nature. Home to drone creators, tech giant Skell Technology, Auroa has fallen into the wrong hands and all contact has been lost.
Check out the gameplay walkthrough here.
The Wolves, a lethal ex–US Military unit of former Ghosts gone rogue, have taken over the island. Led by Nomad’s ex-brother-in-arms, Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker who is a very familiar face. Well, its Jon Bernthal aka The Punisher. They have reprogrammed Skell’s drones into killing machines and are ready to us them, no matter the casualties. Nomad and the Ghosts are sent in on a recon mission, but their helicopters are shot down. Injured, without support, and hunted down, you will have to fight to survive and take down the Wolves and regain control of Auroa.
Steep slopes, accumulating injuries, and fatigue are the new challenges for you to tackle in the different terrains of Auroa. In order for you to overcome adversity, you will enjoy total freedom to accomplish your missions and have plenty of tactical options and tools at your disposal with new military features. This time you can carry enemies and teammates’ bodies, blend into their environment and set up camp with teammates in the bivouac to manage equipment, change classes, and fine-tune your strategies.
You can also be able to choose different customization combinations to “cheng” your perfect Ghost, and keep your character and progression through the game in both the main campaign and PvP.
Plus there is also a post-launch content support plan, with regular updates after the launch. New story arcs, classes and features will be added, and for the first time in a Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon game, a new type of endgame content called Raids.
